Options for Displaying Account Balances

You can display the balances (credit and debit amounts) sorted according to posting periods. To do this, choose Goto
The special G/L transactions are not displayed.
- Sales/Purchases (by posting period)
To display the sales/purchases per posting period (debit minus credit of the sales/purchases-related postings), choose Goto
